A service plan assesses community need and reflects the engagement of community partners to establish strategic priorities and outcomes. The plan will outline steps to implement the strategic priorities at a local level, while also supporting the overall provincial system level goals and vision for early years and child care.

The service plan needs to reflect community input and shared priorities. Multiple methods will be used to consult with early learning and child care providers, partners and families.

Who are we?

The City of Kawartha Lakes is the designated Consolidated Municipal Service Manager (CMSM) responsible for planning, managing and funding the early learning and licensed child care system in the City of Kawartha Lakes and County of Haliburton.

  • support the inclusion of children with special needs in licensed child care
  • enable parents to work or undertake training or education leading to employment
  • provide linkages to other support services
  • Improve child and family outcomes no matter income, race, language, cultural background, religion, family structure, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, immigration status, or unique needs
